Fabienne the Fabulous! (sorry, couldn't resist...)

Ahhh! Several months after the release of albums by Holly Golightly (and the Brokeoffs) and Billy Childish (and the Musicians of the British Empire), Damaged Goods finally has new news to offer. French singer/London resident/Payless Shoes peddler Fabienne Delsol, former singer for the Bristols, will be releasing a new record on August 27 called Between You and Me. Additionally, she'll be putting out a 7" and download for "I'm Gonna Catch Me a Rat" on August 20, also via Damaged Goods.

Fabienne Delsol - Laisse Tomber Les Filles (sound familiar?)
Fabienne Delsol - I'm Gonna Haunt You

Stream tracks from Between You and Me on Fabienne Delsol's MySpace page.

In the world of the extremely unrelated...

According to Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover (the utterly fantastic American music magazine mentioned in a previous post which offers a slightly inferior online counterpart here), female R&B group Candy Hill was signed to a two-song deal with Universal/Republic not too long ago. Now, judging from their MySpace page, their deal was adjusted to include - ah - slightly more musical content, but is this a surefire sign that album deals with major labels will soon be a thing of the past? Jesus. (P.S. That track "Whatz Ya Phone Number" is some quality shit.)

Dischord/Adult Swim artist Fast Piece of Furniture is fucking fantastic and actually has long term potential. Have a listen and buy Adventures in Contentment via Dischord's website; one, because it's good, and two, because Dischord does not rip you off. Hey!
